It's a girl!
A Miami woman, who went into labor at home in Little Haiti early Sunday, was coached through her birth by doctors and emergency workers who could not reach her in time during Hurricane Irma.
And the new mom even handled the afterbirth.
“We weren’t able to respond. So she delivered the placenta, also. Dispatch told her how to tie it off. She’s stable at home,” Assistant Fire Chief Eloy Garcia told the Miami Herald. “We made contact with the assistant medical director here. Talked things through.”
The mother and her baby were later taken to a hospital, the City of Miami tweeted. "This morning @CityofMiamiFire crew was able to transport baby and mom to Jackson Hospital."
